On Tuesday 26th September, ADRC’s Dr Samuel Nyman was invited to present to the Department of Health, University of Bath.
He presented on, “Promotion of physical activity among people with dementia: A behaviour change perspective”.
A seminar room filled with staff and postgraduate students were interested to learn about the TACIT Trial .
Dr Nyman provided the rationale for the study along with the approach taken to delivery of the intervention. We are harnessing participants’ implicit memory, which remains relatively intact in people with dementia.We are also using behaviour change techniques to help people get as much benefit from the free Tai Chi course.
